Former Maintenance Facility for the Darien Park District
The District is excited to announce that they were awarded a $600,000 OSLAD Grant in 2023 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to assist with developing the former maintenance facility site, at 802 Plainfield Road.
The proposed project will focus on environmental responsibility by including community gardens, along with a large pollinator garden. It will also include a splash pad, as well as a playground, shelter, perennial maze and many shady picnic areas.
Detailed construction plans are being developed and bid, and the project is expected to begin construction in the Spring/Summer 2024.
